About a week and a half ago I made out with a guy at a bar whose status i do not know. The "deep kissing" wasn't really that deep but still it happened. There was some biting of the lip but to my acknowledgment there wasn't any blood. My only concern is what if there was a drop of blood or something from his gums or if he had a cut in his mouth that I didn't see that troubles me I also looked in my mouth today and on my cheek beside my back right wisdom tooth looks like a small cut that i believe to be from my retainer that I wear at night. My only concern about this is that i'm not sure how long this has been here. About a couple of days ago I started to get a stuffy nose and a sore throat on the left side this was also accompanied by extremely dry lips as well a bit of an upset stomach. Are these symptoms of hiv? I don't know if this could possibly be attributed to the weather change. I guess my question is what is the risk of transmission of hiv through making out or deep kissing someone.I have a cavity in on one of my wisdom teeth that is pretty deep but its not bleeding or anything. Could that also raise a risk? I also want to add that about 5 months ago I was diagnosed with herpes type 1 that i got from my cheating ex-boyfriend and i'm just trying to get back out in the dating world. Could this in any way raise my risk of transmission as well? I went to a free hive testing center today to get tested and my test came back negative. Now i know that you have to wait for 3 months until a result can be consider conclusive but up until this point my results were negative. I just trying to figure out if this is something that I should worry about or try to put it to the back of my mind and live my life. I have seen a lot of people saying that hiv can't be transmitted through making out but then i have also seen that you can so I'm just trying to get some answers before i drive myself insane worrying about this.
Thanks for your question,
Deep kissing is only theoretically risky for HIV. The mouth is typically not a good way to give or get HIV!
This could change if you have open sores in the mouth, but it doesn't sound like you did.
All in all, doesn't really sound like risk to me.
Hope this helps,
